My family agrees Dole PIneapple Whip is the Best Disney Snack or treat at any of the Disney Parks. You can only find this treat at Disney’s Polynesian and the Magic Kingdom. see recipe
If you Google popular snacks or treats at Disney World, you will see this Dole Pineapple Whip. Dole Pineapple Whip is one of the most popular treats at Disney. It is cold, creamy, and a tropical delight. It is not ice cream. Pineapple Whip is much lighter than ice cream but does taste a lot like pineapple ice cream. To make this Dole Whip, you just drain and freeze the pineapple until it is slushy. Next, you add it to heavy cream that has been whipped, freeze again, and ENJOY! There are only two places you can get this magical treat inside Disney World. One place to get a Dole Pineapple Whip is at the Magic Kingdom and the other is at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. Better yet, try making this delicious Dole Pineapple Whip Treat at home.
Instructions to Make Dole Pineapple Whip using a Vitamix
I left the pineapple in the freezer too long and it was very frozen. So, I decided to put it in the Vitamix. I added the heavy cream and 3 Tablespoons of sugar and turned the Vitamix on. It was perfect in less than a minute. I did not even have to return it back to the freezer for another hour like the directions said. I just love my Vitamix. Everything I make in it is so quick and easy. The next time you order a smoothie, milkshake, iced coffee, or any other frozen drink, notice what type of blender they use. Chances are they use a Vitamix. They are really powerful! This is my first post about food I have made using my Vitamix. I have a feeling I will be posting many more recipes using myVitamix. I am finding the Viamix replaces several kitchen appliances including my food processor, blender, ice cream maker and more. I cannot wait until fall when I can try preparing soups in my Vitamix. Vitamix claims you can cook soups in just a couple of minutes. If you are interested in getting a Vitamix, I have found the best places to look are Sam’s and QVC.
I am sad to say that Vitamix did not give me a machine to give away nor was I compensated in any way. I just enjoy my Vitamix a lot and wanted to tell you my opinion of this great kitchen appliance.
Instructions to Make Dole Pineapple Whip WITHOUT a Vitamix –
- 2 (20 ounce) cans Dole crushed pineapple with juice
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons lime juice

- Freeze the pineapple mixture for 1 to 2 hours or until slushy.
- Whip the heavy cream.
- Add the slushy pineapple to the whipped cream and stir until smooth.
- Return to the freezer until frozen about an hour.
Update on this Dole Pineapple Recipe
In the recipe above I blended the pineapple and the froze it. Next, I whipped the heavy cream added the pineapple in it and returned it back to the freezer for an hour.
This time, I decided to add all the ingredients to my blender at the same time including the heavy cream. I blended it for about a minute until the sound of the Vitamix changed. It was about a minute. Next, I placed the Pineapple Whip in a freezer container and froze it for about an hour. It worked just as well. It will work and be delicious if you freeze it before you blend it or after you blend it.
